. >> andrea. >> we've heard a lot of names in these behind closed doors talks, we've heard biden, we've heard reid, the name we haven't heard is vice-president joe biden. what's the significance of them bringing him in in the 11th hour discussion? >> i think it's important because he was in delaware this weekend and all of a sudden, suddenly, rushed back to the white house early today and that's significant because when they had things all boxed up a year and a half ago on the debt ceiling and looked like they'd hit a brick wall, it was joe biden reaching out to mitch mcconnell and bridged the divide and magically had a deal and some senior aides who say joe biden might be the key to unsticking this, afternoon biden and mcconnell worked on the debt ceiling, many years in the senate, obviously, together and that's why they have that relationship, there's some in the white house who call the vice-president the mcconnell whisperer, as if he has some sort of magic potion that bring people together. >> stuart? >> can i just ask you, ed, if there's any deal you've heard of that's bandied around her
biden to see if he could help. >> we're willing to work with whoever can help. no single issue remains an impossible sticking point. a sticking point appears to be a willingness and interest or frankly the courage to close the deal. >> reporter: as senate aide says it was designed to try to jumpstart the talks and consequences of getting a tax increase is a huge concern. >> gregg: what went awry in these talks? >> you heard senator thune. a fiscal cliff deal is a new way calculating inflation that would lower social security payments. democrats say they would do it as part of much bigger deal but it was off the table for the smaller deal they are working on. so democrats called it a poison pill. >> at some point, negotiating process, it appears there are things that stopped us from moving forward. i hope we're not there, but we're getting real close. that is why i still hold out hope we can get something done, but i'm not overly optimistic but i'm cautiously optimistic. >> chuck schumer from new york continues to say the things, meaning a deal, always happens at the end. >> gregg: we'l
progress came out of the senate leader mitch mcconnell's meeting with vice president joe biden. >> we've been asking you, our viewers, to send in your thoughts, your messages to elected representatives. so let's close tonight with some advice from one of you to washington. >> my message to all of washington for the new year is to set partisanship aside working on behalf of 100% of the voters, fix this mess you've gotten us into, bring a balanced budget to the table to grow this economy for the long term not the short term. >> there you go. for the long term, not the short term. >> there you go. i'm don lemon. happy new year to you. jooirksz . >>> hello, i'm don lemon and this is cnn's top 10 of 2012. we look at the stories that captured our attention, what we see as the biggest stories of the year around the world, in crime, money, weather and even the biggestscandals and later this hour, those stories chosen by you. anchor of state of the union, candy crowley, with the top ten political stories of 2012. >>> like finding your favorite grain of sand on the beach. impossible number of p
connell called on vice president joe biden to be that dance partner. biden has brokered 11th-hour deals with the republican leader in the past. mcconnell's appeal came just hours after the president appeared on "meet the press" and called out republican leaders by name. >> congress has not been able to get this stuff done, not because democrats in congress don't want to go ahead and cooperate, but because i think it's been very hard for speaker boehner and republican leader mcconnell to accept the fact that taxes on the wealthiest americans should go up a little bit as part of an overall deficit reduction package. >> nbc's capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell is live on capitol hill. kelly o., i'm looking at the clock, we are now 14 hours and 58 minutes from going over the fiscal cliff. let's outline -- >> reporter: but who's counting, right, chris? >> yeah, who's counting? let's go over for people, what remains unresolved? it seems like two weeks ago they were pretty well set on the basic parameters of this thing, so let's talk about what's left to deal on? >> reporter: well, the
president joe biden. yep. that's right. joe biden is the latest person to be called on to try to get congress out of the straight jacket they've put themselves in. the vp and senate minority leader mitch mcconnell exchanged phone calls until midnight last night and again this morning, and appeared to be zeroing in on a tax rate compromise in the region of a $450,000 to $550,000 threshold. a higher rate than the president's earlier compromise as well as an agreement on the estate tax. sticking points remain. president obama seemed resigned to going over the cliff. >> if all else fails, if republicans do, in fact, decide to block it so that taxes on middle class families do, in fact, go up on january 1st, then on january 4th the first bill to be introduced on the floor will be to cut taxes on middle class families. >> and this morning former white house spokesman robert gibbs was even more blunt. >> the republicans simply can't utter the word yes. they cannot utter the word yes. i mean, i feel like it's -- i feel like you're talking to a 5-year-old, and, you know, you're saying, look,
senate minority leader mitch mcconnell, the top republican in the senate, and vice president joe biden. these are the two players right now. they discussed a possible remedy late into the night, around midnight, we are told, by an aide to mitch mcconnell, and at least at the staff level negotiations began again this morning. the question everyone wants to know, suzanne, of course, is are we going over the cliff? it appears very -- it's sort of unclear at this point. it's difficult to see how we kind of don't logistically and politically at this point, but the president has said he's optimistic, and so have some republicans. >> brianna, finally, what is the drop dead last deadline here in terms of whether or not we know this is going to happen or it's not going to happen? >> reporter: that's interesting because everyone would presume the drop dead deadline is tonight, and obviously to avert some of these tax cuts expiring, and it's not just these income tax rates, it's a bunch of other things as well and these spending cuts, that would be tonight. but the sense i'm getting and the sense

close, but no deal. leads me to ask, what about joe biden? our vice president? he's the one who kind of brought things together in the early morning hours. >> reporter: he did, and mitch mcconnell called vice president biden, and they were hammering out a deal almost to the point where the senate minority leader said when he woke up this morning he thought they did have a deal, at least on the tax portion. republicans saying they have worked out and reached agreement on the tax issues, the problem are the automatic spending cuts, the $94 billion known oz the sequester throughout 2013. the white house wants to pull back on those cuts, republicans want to replace those cuts with other cuts. first, let's take a look at what they've agreed to. this is the framework on taxes. it exempts income of $400,000 for individuals,450 for families. capital gains and dividends stay the same underneath those amounts, for amounts above that, 20% on those taxes. the alternative minimum tax, the estate tax goes to 40% with all amounts of less than $5 million exempt from that tax. a one-year extension of
. for example, on the on the other side, ryan debate against biden, he dance today the questions and never once did he turn to the audience hearing shear more media bias. the audience would have loved it independents would have agree that the media are biased against republicans. >> jon: all those debates, did they illuminate the process the presidential campaign? >> i think they did. first of all they were catnip for reporters. there were thousands of reporters. it was amazing that anything else got covered. when you have that many debates. you got to see these candidates and it was wide range of candidates, really demonstrating a capability or lack of capability on complex issuess. the voters made up their minds. you saw one media promoted figure fall after they couldn't stand the scrutiny that came upon a front-runner. >> jon: obama campaign made clear attempts of trying to demonize mitt romney. they settled on him as eventual challenger. media, as well. there was a newsweek cover poking fun at mitt romney's mormonism for example. >> media is a target rich environment. they are trying define
, it is up to this man. on the right. vice president joe biden called in to help with the debt negotiations that we think are going nowhere. there are always rumors and whispers in the hallway. let's go to rich for the very latest on the progress. rich: there is progress, ashley. they are working on a tentative agreement right now. they can always get choked up on the finer points. this is what they are working with right now. it basically extends all tax cuts for people under $400,000 a year. it permanently patches -- it make sure doctors treating medicare patients do not get a pay cut. a one-year extension of unemployment benefits. on top of all of this, there are some discussions on how to deal with the sequester. they amount to about $8 trillion over the next decade. $94 billion total in 2013. the u.s. and congress and the white house, according to our source, is weighing a 60-90 day delay in those automatic spending cuts. that is how they would deal with that. one omission in all of this, and this is very important, they are not discussing an extension of the debt ceiling. they want to

biden and minority leader mitch mcconnell at that time where they stand at all the tax cuts and apparel tax cut and the unemployment benefits. so the leader coming in again trying to up for some type of compromise and get to the senate. for now the white house is letting the senate worked its magic. tom: interesting. but you very much. well, r-texas congressman michael burgess says we need much deeper spending cuts than anyone is talking about. congressman, you know what they say, well, no, no, this austerity stuff will put us into recession. >> oh, there are so many different facets to this, tom. can i just say that the process part, and i know i'm not supposed to talk about process, but it makes me uncomfortable. the same people that were there 18 months ago in that room in the white house are there again. they did not come up with a very good idea in august of 2011, and we have to expect something different this time. but the american people in their wisdom returned the same players to the same positions in the last election, so we will deal with what we have to deal with. i do, you
to vice president joe biden. that's just some of the details as you so well know here but let's remind ourselves, though, of this word that we have been using. that was termed by mr. bernanke. he called it a cliff. but really -- >> right. >> it is like falling down stairs, isn't it? >> right. more so a staircase or a slope in the sense that some of the damage you just described actually takes a while to arrive and if congress is able to quickly reverse the cliff dive, it could be more and i have heard folks use this, more of a bungee yump to get back up to the cliff. >> at the end of the day, right. >> the tax increases you noticed, these are tax increase that is are fazed in over the course of 2013. so it's not until april 2014 when you're filling out the tax bill for the prior year that you would be looking at some of the increases you just described. now, a couple of nuances, though. the payroll tax cut that's been in effect, the 2% on your paycheck of a payroll tax break, that does go away right away. and people will likely see that quickly. and by the way, i don't think any party
while 43 percent disapprove. but as president joe biden's numbers are in line with the president. 54 percent approve of his job performance while 40 percent do not. first lady michelle obama has a 73 percent approval rating. all going secretary of state hillary clinton is also popular with a 66 percent approval rating. >> a new gallup poll shows a majority of americans supported stricter gun laws but most are against banning assault weapons. 58 percent of americans now say that they do support stricter gun laws. that is up from 43% in october 2011. 48% of the public say that they want to enforce current laws while 47 percent once the new legislation. the law to ban assault weapons which is backed by president obama has not gained much support since 2000 of 11 and october. 44 percent support the assault weapons ban what 51 percent are against it. >> education officials said santa cruz city schools are expected to consider a resolution next month calling for stricter national gun-control laws. the school board's vice president is drafting a symbolic statement calling for a ban on assau
. >> let's get some reaction now with senate john barrasso. have asked vice president biden to come to capitol hill to sell the deal to democratic lawmakers. what do you make of that headline? >> i know the republicans are going to meet at 4:30 this afternoon. all the republicans in the senate to go over the proposal. it sounds like the democrats are as well. but the democrats have been very divided over the level for raising taxes, over how to tax small businesses which are the job makers in this country, as well as the death tax which hits so many small businesses and farms and ranches and job creators. so the democrats are divided. we're going to meet at 4:30 to go over the specifics of the agreement to see if it's something that we will vote for. >> how are you on the republican side? are you divided on this tax issue they've agreed apparently to an income tax increase to 39.6% on individuals making $400,000 and $450,000 for couples. >> we're united in wanting to make sure any increase in tax revenue specifically goes to dealing with the debt and the deficit and is not used on a
to make a deal. here now to ace cnbc contributor, biden's chief economist and jimmy path kukis of the american enterprise institute. will we have a deal by monday. >> >> think we are. if you had asked me before the president spoke i would have said no. >> why? >> because i can see a path. if mcconnell and reid can hammer out a deal that's acceptable to both of them i believe that john boehner will let that deal come up for a vote in the house, and i believe that vote will pass in the house though probably with majority democrat. if that happens, we may well have a deal. >> you said a big f, though. if mcconnel and reid can hammer something out. the senate hasn't passed a budget in years, jared. tell me, how is harry reid going to come up with something by monday? >> well, as you've been stressing for most of the show, correct me, this is not a budget. this is a last-minute deal that's going to have a few components and i will count them on one hand that will have a tax threshold. 250. i wouldn't be surprised if they went to him with a higher number. u.n. extension, doc fix and

the reauthorization was up, i think for the first time, i went to senator biden and said, i'd like to help you. i think he said, i think he probably said he wanted help. but at the time, republicans which is taking over the senate everybody thought we were going to reauthorize. and senator biden -- senator biden said -- okay, i want to finish my story. he -- i don't think he believe me, but for five months later the bill was going through the senate, he says, you know, you were true in your wanted to help was reauthorize this. because voting is the basis of our representative system of government and it ought to be reserved for all people. but nobody's vote should be diluted by people who are not eligible to vote, voting. i yield the floor. >> thank you very much, and you are a stalwart then, and one of the reasons why senator grassley and i have been such good friends all these years. i have to go to the floor to administer an appropriations bill. those on the appropriations committee. and senator durbin has agreed to take over the hearing and will have statements for the record from senator war

[sighs] and i am blanking on what thispc possibly could be. meredith, i'm question. meredith: no problem. question out of play. let's see the correct answer. julia roberts and hillary clinton. >> ok. meredith: now let's see what you jumped over. all the money's on the board. it could be any amount here. $1,000. not the worst-case scenario by any means. not bad. meredith: and by jumping over that money, you are one question closer to the million, now just 13 questions away."ancient tren "ancient trends" is the next category. finding 57 of them preserved on a 5,300-year-old mummy, scientists had to rethink the origins of what body decoration? tattoos, bracelets, piercings, necklaces. >> ha ha ha! tattoos. that makes sense if that's on a mummy. piercings would, too. my goodness. i'm not getting this one, either, meredith. i'm gonna have to jump this question. meredith: ok, we're gonna jump again. it's out of play. the right answer, please? the correct answer
in the second term be spending more time out raising money for other democrats or maybe vice president biden if he decides to run rather than being in the white house doing the work that he was elected to do? caller: i believe if a president -- if president obama is out there campaigning, he's doing it for the american people, simple as that. guest: the caller hit some important point. campaigning is very much a means to an end. presidents don't capability -- campaign cause they don't do their job. they believe it will help them do their job more effective. and campaigning, a president with a second term can get closer to that more perfect union. they're in a stronger position to intact his priorities. so it's certainly the case that campaigning is part of the process. and if hamilton were here today, who knows what he would say but perhaps he could echo the sentments that he would keep the presidents in closer touch with the people. one thing is spending too much time in a white house or being out of touch with the people so when presidents are taking their case to the people, you could arg
to allow any taxes for revenues whatsoever. we had meetings with the vice president biden and cantor. he walked out of it. he's the majority leader in the house. we had this supercommittee and they were doing good things. good things. dealing with entitlements and revenues and a week before they were to report, by virtue of a statute, i get a letter signed by virtually every republican, too bad about the supercommittee. we're not going to do anything with revenues. >> okay. i think that's a good place to end this. what you're hearing is the history of what has happened to bring us to this point. i want to bring in our congressional correspondent dana bash. dana, i was just sitting here imagining someone turning on their tv thinking, what a these people talking about? and i think i would sort of boil it down to this. when they are talking on the floor, that's never a good sign. they should be talking in a back room. they have gotten nowhere. we are where we are and nobody has agreed on to come up with something. >> reporter: that is right, candy. this is the kind of stuff that we watch an
at a deadline at inauguration. in joe biden's language, will the fever break by the time the president is sworn in again for his second term? because if it doesn't, then whatever you see in the first week of trading now is going to be nothing, nothing compared to how global markets will react come the end of january. >> there's obviously a new congress coming in. does the composition in the new congress, can anybody figure out what happens there? >> well, i mean, numerically, it's more favorable to democrats, right? the house will still be controlled by john boehner. so you still have that divided congress. but the calculation is not, you know, a numerical one. it's the idea that if they go home -- first if they go home for christmas break, they'd feel the pressure, but it doesn't seem like that's coming. if they go over the cliff and they do mess with the debt ceiling, that people are going to get freaked and spooked because you'll start hearing stories about social security recipients facing the prospect of smaller checks from the government, unemployment insurance completely dried up, payrol
